I’m selling my Yamaha Custom YTR-83 Eric Miyashiro prototype #62/77. This horn belonged to my former band director, who bought it off of Eric Miyashiro himself while touring with Maynard and the Big Bop Nouveau. The horn is one of 77 prototypes produced by Yamaha, and was play tested by Eric himself. The horn is #62/77, and is in raw brass. The horn is based off of the original 6310Z Bobby Shew, but uses large bore slides. The horn currently has a nice raw brass patina, but was recently chem cleaned by Rich Ita And was also brushed and polished. If interested, I can have the horn cleaned again.

The YTR-83 was never intended for the US market, and was primarily sold in Japan. The horn has one small dent in the second valve slide, but is in overall excellent shape otherwise. Play-ability is not affected by this small dent! It’ll come with a reunion blues gig bag, but no mouthpiece or mute.

I’m asking $2500 obo. This is an incredibly rare and special horn, worthy of being in someone’s collection. I’m just ready for something new.

I’m interested in the Bach LT 1901BML or 1901BL in lacquer, or the new Yamaha Bobby Shew YTR-8310Z-II and would consider a trade. Please feel free to make any offers or ask any questions, thank you!!
